Learn about the journey of starting a business from those who have done it, meet people who can support you along your own journey, celebrate pursuing meaningful work.
Entrepreneurs Unleashed is an event to shed some light on how to start a business. We invite successful founders along to share their stories. The event style is Q&A so we can ask questions to understand the processes and mindset that have enabled each founder to be successful in their own unique way.
As well as learning about starting and growing a company, you'll enjoy the company of other founders, creatives, makers, designers, developers, startup mentors, and experts, who come along to this event.
Ticket includes dinner catered by Catroux and kombucha on tap from our friends at Organic Mechanic.
